The British are known for their afternoon tea and delicate sandwiches. Create your own tradition by serving these simple, bite-sized sandwiches. Made with mashed avocado, cream cheese and micro-greens smeared on soft bread and topped with cucumber slices. Pretzel sticks are used to gently hold all of the layers together. Kid-friendly.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 ea. medium Avocado From Mexico, halved, pitted, peeled, and mashed
  • 1 t. lime juice
  • 2 ea. slices whole grain bread, crusts removed
  • 1 ea. medium English cucumber, sliced (reserve 4 slices as garnish)
  • 1/2 c. micro-greens (or alfalfa sprouts)
  • 2 T. whipped cream cheese (plain or veggie flavor)
  • 4 ea. matchstick pretzels (used as edible "toothpicks" to hold sandwich together)

Instructions

  1. Mash avocado in a small bowl with lime juice.
  2. Spread avocado evenly on one slice of the bread. On the other slice, spread whipped cream cheese evenly. Layer cucumber slices and micro-greens (or sprouts). Top sandwich with second slice of bread.
  3. Cut sandwich in half and again, so that there are 4 small bite-sized sandwiches. Top each sandwich with a slice of cucumber. Using a knife, make a slice thru the center of the sandwich and use a pretzel matchstick stuck in the center to hold together. Serve immediately.
